Laura Burkhart, E-RYT 500

Originally from Kentucky, Laura is the daughter of Pastor and a San Francisco based international teacher. She is a featured online teacher with Grokker, My Yoga Works, Om Star’s and Yoga Vibes. Laura co-leads 200-hr teacher trainings with Jason Crandell and 300/500 hour teacher trainings with Michelle Thielen of YogaFaith.

Laura sought out yoga to help combat serious health problems due to a decade of major stress and insomnia. She gravitated toward yoga because it reminded her of the similar meditative movement she found when she use to dance. The healing, grounding benefits she received from yoga, in conjunction with how the practice enabled to her connect with her authentic core, was so profound that she decided to change the course of her work life to help others find the same relief and peace she had found through a fluid, meditative practice.

In recent years, after experiencing a serious hip injury and other injuries due repetitive stress and pushing too far from growing-up dancing followed by almost 20-years of asana, Laura has become passionate about teaching teachers and practitioners safe alignment and sequencing while still keeping practices fun.  Laura’s creative, well-rounded classes are smartly sequenced with a smooth, rhythmic flow. She also is deeply passionate about training others on the cautions of asana and properly teaching and executing postures and sequences through Yoga Injury Prevention.

Because our Master Teacher Training focuses on Therapeutics we are elated to have Laura’s expertise pour into YogaFaith’s future Masters and World Changers! Come, join her on this breathtaking journey!
